We decided to book a United States river cruise because it fell within the guidelines of the CDC. We have done 50+ ocean cruises but this was our small boat cruise. There was much hesitancy before boarding on whether we would enjoy it or not. We definitely were pleasantly surprised by all aspects of the cruise. From the ease of boarding and embarkation we were amazed at the efficiently and treatment. We had a small problem on the first night, but the hotel manager took care of it immediately to our great satisfaction. The dining was on par with the ocean liners and in some respects better. We followed the CDC guidelines in all venues and the boat was immaculate at all times. The entertainment was good and the only negative was the performers were hampered by such a small stage. All the crew worked together to make their guest fully enjoy the small boat experience. We were so impressed that we booked another river boat cruise this summer. Kudos to the crew of the American Duchess.
Well appointed and roomy accodations.
